Emmalee and Eli both needed treats to take somewhere today, so last night we made some reindeer cake pops. I was a good mom, I just have to say. I made the oreo mixture, had the kids do the rolling. I sticked and dipped the pops, but I had the kids break/form the pretzel antlers, put the mini chip eyes on and Emmalee rocked the red m&m noses!
Now...a few ended up looking a little rough, like they had grown up with ogars instead of fellow reindeer,
but all in all the kids did a really good job making the pops themselves. It was super exciting, for Ems at least, to say she made them herself.
I think together they made about 60!
Slave child labor is the best ;0)
Apparently the pops tasted good too. Lets just say that 60 didn't make it...we were a few less in numbers when it came time for the reindeer to fly.
I realized this morning that I had totally forgotten the Christmas present for Emmer's preschool teacher that was supposed to accompany those cake pops. I am proud to say, in 15 minutes flat, I produced this red Christmas scarf! Granted, everything I own craft-wise is spread across my basement so I didn't have to get a thing out, just sit down and sew :0)
*Phew* Crisis averted. Now to get back to business, that basement of mine....
